Leesa’s Life

Archive for November 2007

It’s that time of year again. Time to pull the decorations out of the attic and embellish your home with red and green. I think our house has finally been finished. The tree is up…check. The wreath is hung…check. Garland is strung…check. Yep, I think we’re done. Now to sit back and enjoy!


Here’s wishing all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy time spent with your friends and family today and be thankful for all that you have. Happy Thanksgiving.

This is my hubby. Doesn’t he look serious in this picture? He’s really not, actually he is a pretty big goofball, but I love him anyway.

Anyway, I wanted to tell you about dear hubby and the constant pain in the neck that he is…I mean, has! lol You see, he has always been one to lift and pick up things that are way too heavy for him to do so. I have been at him ever since we first got married to get help when it comes to moving heavy pieces of furniture, lifting pieces of machinery, etc. but he doesn’t listen. He has always said that if he could lift it then it was fine and he’d continue to do it until he couldn’t anymore. Well, that day has finally arrived. He now has constant pain in his neck, shoulders and upper back from all the lifting that he has done in the past. We both think he will eventually need surgery on either his neck or upper back, but for now he uses a lot of muscle rub to get relief. It would be awesome if I won this contest that Freeze It Gel is having because I would win an entire years supply of Freeze It to ease his pain. It would also ease my pain because I wouldn’t have to hear him whine about how sore he is.

If you have never heard of it, Freeze It is AWESOME! I think it is the best muscle rub out there. You can use it for muscle soreness, arthritis pain, joint pain and even muscle strains. Take a look at their new television commercial to learn more about Freeze It.

I strongly urge you to go out and buy Freeze It and try it yourself. It really is one of the better products out there. You’ll be glad that you gave it a try.

Aahh, the beginning of a new week. Usually I don’t look forward to Mondays, but after last week and this past weekend I was definitely looking forward to today. I’m hoping this week is better and calmer and people aren’t as much of a pain in the a** to me as they have been the past few days/weeks. Not saying that I’m enjoying going back to work today, but I am enjoying the peace and quiet that I’m getting right now.

Found out that there won’t be a Thanksgiving meal here in our house this year. My brother and his family are going to his inlaws this year and my parents are staying home to rest and relax. That just left me, hubby, and kids and hubby said he’d rather just go out for a nice dinner instead of having me in the kitchen all day. THANKS! It’s going to seem weird not cooking or having anybody here, but I’m looking forward to it.

I got a cool little surprise in the mail today and wanted to share it with you. There was a nice sized package waiting for me and inside were some really cool gift ideas. This package included Smencils Scented Pencils, Color Flame party candles, and Insta Snow.

I love all of the items I received, but I think my favorite one has got to be the Insta Snow. It’s the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. You just take some of this powdery stuff (it looks like sugar), add water and presto! You have snow! It’s light and fluffy and looks like what you’d find on a movie set. And the best part is that it doesn’t melt, is non-toxic and lasts for weeks. I’m going to use mine in my holiday decorations.

The Smencils Scented Pencil that I received is the Very Berry scent. I love using it because the entire time I’m writing, I can smell it. The only downside is that is makes me hungry, but that’s fine. The best thing about this pencil though is that it is made entirely from recycled newspapers!

I’ve not tried the color flame candles yet, but they look like they’d be fun to use. I think they’d be a great addition to any child’s birthday or even an adult’s for that matter.

So, that was my nice little surprise for the day. I hope I get another one really soon.

this is a sponsored post.

I’m in the process of changing my blog over to wordpress. If you want to keep up with me, change any bookmarks or favorites that this blog is listed in to leesak.wordpress.com. This way you won’t miss anything that goes on in my exciting life:)

Ok, I’m getting a bit annoyed with Google right now and their everchanging pageranks. I’ve gone from a PR3, down to a PR1, back up to a PR3, down to a PR2 (two days ago) and now I’m at a PR0! What the heck?!?!? How often do they change the rankings? Every day? It wouldn’t bother me so much if I wasn’t trying to earn some extra money by writing sponsored ads. But, a lot of these sponsors go by pagerank and when you have a low one, you get less work. I know there are several people out there that say not to write sponsored ads on your blog, it drives readers away. Maybe they’re right. Maybe that’s what is going on here even though I’m still showing a lot of traffic to my site. I don’t know. It’s so frustrating.

Edit: After much searching on the web, I’ve noticed that several blogs that write sponsored ads have been knocked down to a PR0. Several of these blogs have speculated that google is “out to get” those of us who write these ads. Personally, I think it’s a crock to have high and mighty google punish you for what is written on your blog. what happened to freedom of speech?
